300 Mission is a 24-story Class A office building located in San Francisco’s Financial District and is part of one of the many skyscrapers that dominate the skyline. Being directly in the Financial District comes with many perks. 300 Mission scored 17 points for being in a location with a walker’s paradise score of 99, and that has a public transit stop within 1/2 mile from the building. Included at 300 Mission, you can find a plaza that contains trees and benches right outside of the entrance to allow occupants to take a stroll and breathe in clean quality air with ample trees for shading.

Fitness is a significant factor in keeping the occupants in a building healthy, and 300 Mission offers a diverse selection of fitness opportunities. Occupants at the building are only 0.4 miles away from Sue Bierman Park where they can utilize the running and walking trails. Occupants also have access to multiple Ford GoBike stations, including one across the street.

A few strategies incorporated into the design at 300 Mission are illuminated pathways surrounding the property at night, visible stairwells to help occupants easily access a more fit way to get to their floor, signage around the stairs motivating occupants to take the stairs instead of the elevators, and includes tenant spaces with more than 60% of natural daylight coming in.

300 Mission is one of four buildings from Paramount Group that achieved Fitwel certification in 2019, helping Paramount in attaining the 2020 Best in Building Health Award given by the Center for Active Design. With over 660,000 square feet and more than 2300 occupants, 300 Mission is known for having a significant impact on the health and wellbeing of its occupiers.
